Rare New Old Stock (NOS) Alba Manta Ray Black-Wave Automatic 200m Divers Watch

History on this Model: Alba is a Seiko Company. To boost its sub-brand's sale, Seiko had Alba make 200m ISO-certified divers watches in 2004. This follows the 200m Aqua Gear line of Alba in the 80s. Alba came up with the Manta Ray line headed by its blue model with mantas swimming in its dial design. Also had black-wave, white-wave, blue-wave, orange, black manta limited edition and yellow ji dai limited edition models. The Manta Ray line also had 100m versions in dark-green, white, blue and black models. The Manta Ray lines were so good in value and size that they were discontinued in 2006 so as not to affect mother company Seiko's divers and Seiko 5 sales. The Mantas are highly-sought after until now and NOS models are very hard to find. Produced only from 2004-2006. For reference, here's the excellent WUS Guide in Buying Alba Manta Rays.

  • Has the Seiko 7s26 automatic movement which Seiko SKX divers like the 007 have
  • This is an ISO-certified scuba divers watch
  • 200m water resistance, 20 bar
  • Dial has the black-wave design. Waves are formed when light hits the dial.
  • Lume is long and excellent.
  • Day/Date Function. Saturday in blue, Sunday in red
  • Red Seconds, lumed unique hour and minute hands original and indicative to the model. Hour Markers resemble Manta Teeth. Inspired new Seiko Monster
  • Slanted chapter ring gives depth to the dial
  • Uni-directional rotating bezel is easy to turn. Clicks. 10-20 in red. Has lumed pip
  • Screw-down knurled crown for water resistance protected by crown guards
  • Back-case has unique Alba's own tsunami design like Seiko divers' own tsunami design. A work of art.
  • Has the original Alba rubber strap with Alba's own tsunami design
  • 22mm lug size
  • In Alba Box
  • With Papers, Asian Guaranty Card
  • Has good weight and size
  • USD250. Payment through Paypal
  • EMS USD25 coming from Quezon City Philippines



Thank you
